Returning to home ice, the Capitals were stunned, 4-3, in Game 5 when Malkin's power-play pass to Crosby was broken up by sliding defenseman Tom Poti only to have the puck get past Varlamov at 3:28 of OT. The Penguins had rallied from a 2-1 deficit after two periods and they withstood Ovechkin's two goals, including his tying tally with less than five minutes to go in regulation. "These games come down to mistakes and bounces,'' Crosby said. ''And we got a good bounce there on the last goal.''
